Hello my name is Jacqueline and I was a loyal witness for over 60 yrs. I moved when the organization moved. I have been an aux. and a regular pioneer, aiding many to come to a knowledge of the truth. I am a third generation witness. I have many family members who are still witnesses. My Crisis of Conscience began when I became aware of the governing body’s great influence and encroachment on Jesus’ place in the congregation. It seems he was mentioned less and less each year, but the governing body scores of times during the meetings. I left in August 2009 and went back to the original Bible Students in January 2010. As a” Holistic Alternative Psychology Practitioner”, I was also disturbed over the many pedophile cases that came my way, done by elders and other brothers within the congregation. I made the society aware. Little did I know it created a file on me in Bethel. I thought I was making them aware of something they didn’t know about. I was wrong. They already knew and threatened to disfellowship me if I cooperated with one case. I had a ” CRISIS OF CONSCIENCE” and went in “SEARCH OF CHRISTIAN FREEDOM” IN CHRIST.
I am here only to help ones that have come to a crisis where “THEY” have decided to leave the Corporation, need help and Christian Fellowship. Sometimes we don’t know where to go. So it is with this attitude and mindset of the Lord Christ Jesus that I want to do what I can, if the Lord permits. Additionally, I prayed hard before deciding to reach out and help if someone needed it. I could have been satisfied with just escaping myself. I was on a sinking luxury ship, I prayed for help. And along came a little TUGBOAT. (The Bible Students). How could I not throw the lifeline to the ones that had jumped without knowing about the little Tugboat. Torgue, Tug placement and Momentum allows a little tugboat to pull even a big ship. There is lots of room on board for those that need something less polished, sleek, fancy and slick. Just plain old Bible , Jehovah and Jesus. No fancy building, just love and trust. The little Tugboat was sent by Jehovah I feel to rescue me and others, that need something that just sticks to the Bible without Big Corporation laws and by-laws.
Ask a question, share your experience, or just blog and talk. We all would love to hear from you. This is a fear- free zone. Comment on questions, reply, or just follow our blog.
In Christ, Jacqueline.
